Keeping a secret this big is going to take lots of balls. Specifically, rugby balls.
Bryan Leech is a cad.
Or, he *was* a cad.
No one is quite certain.
Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act.
The only problem is, no one believes him.
Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship.
The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.
Bryan is determined to prove he’s changed. Eager to settle down with the right woman, he’s got his sights set on the gorgeous redhead who seems terribly familiar.
Eilish is determined to hide her secret. She’ll do anything to keep her child safe, even if that means ignoring her own wishes and desires.
But what happens when Bryan starts to remember? And what will it take for Bryan to convince the girl he forgot that she’s unforgettable?
I read the other two books way before and I totally loved them, so falling back into this series, sadly for the last time, was what I was needing. The story of Eilish and Bryan is quite different than the other characters. Back in the day, these two had a fling, but Bryan remembers nothing and Eilish was left pregnant. Five years later, fate makes them join together. Secrets get revealed, but other things keep growing too... like, you know, love. This book is full of romance, hilarious things that only Eilish would say or do and things that make you facepalm against the floor.
It was so easy to read about these characters because I know them. Sean was the funniest, but Ronan was bae. I was let down that I did not read about Lucy or Annie, because they were hilarious too, you know. But now, Bryan has all my heart. He might have been a douche back in the days, but now is totally baeX2. Little Patrick is a sweetheart. And Eilish is hilarious, I swear. There was a character named Max and I really was thinking that it needs a book, like for real. He's a total sweetheart and with a perfect southern American accent, I loved him.
Overall, the book was perfect, but I was left, idk, like something was amiss. I wanted a better epilogue, but I said that lot. It just... if this is the last book in the series, I wanted an epilogue that would cover all the three stories, you get me? But either way I am happy this book was made and double happy that I read it.
